To Live OR Not to Live

If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.
- Michael Jordan
This is exactly what Arunachalam Murugananhtam did. He did not care about the bricks that others threw at him and moved forward.

The Journey of Motherhood | The Perfect Road Trip

For a mother, the best ‘Road Trip’ is the ‘Journey of Motherhood’. Here is an account from a Mother – her daughter’s journey from her womb into the world and, finally into adulthood and beyond:

The Journey That Was

I was a young mother of 22. I was carrying my first child and felt an overwhelming sense of responsibility. Finally, after 9 months, in the cold month of January 1994, she came into our life. My husband and I were proud parents of a healthy girl, Leena.

The dilemma of today's employed

One of our family friends, a middle-aged lady told us about one of her nephews working in an MNC in Mumbai. 

She said, “Loratue bhal sakori etai pale MNC etat. Kintu Mumbai-t ghoror bhaara iman besi je tar khaboloie nujure besera. He biyau koraise, kintu poisar bor natoni. Tar maa-ke upai nepai tar Mumbai-r ghoror bhaara tu dibo lage. Ajikalir lora-suali oti durbhogiya.

… This meant, “The guy got a good job in an MNC in Mumbai. But the rents there are so high that, his salary strains to cover the expenses. If he pays the rent, there is hardly enough left to eat. So his mother pays his rent. The present generation’s youngsters are very hapless.”

The Roads and The Greens

"For a second I was almost jealous of the clouds."
People often tend to forget that the lesser known parts of the world contain mesmerizing beauty. Those enigmatic far-away lands have the power to make one lose track of time. Fortunately, I got a chance to make a journey to such a fabulous place.

Voice of the Soul

On and on they flew, over the countryside parceled out in patches of green and brown, over roads and rivers winding through the landscapes like strips of matte and glossy ribbon.

... This is how J K Rowling, author of Harry Potter describes the art of painting.

On Thalassemia

Wikipedia says,
Thalassemia forms of inherited autosomal recessive blood disorders that originated in the Mediterranean region. In thalassemia, the disease is caused by the weakening and destruction of red blood cells. Thalassemia is caused by variant or missing genes that affect how the body makes hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. People with thalassemia make less hemoglobin and fewer circulating red blood cells than normal, which results in mild or severe anemia. Thalassemia can cause significant complications, including iron overload, bone deformities and cardiovascular illness.
